Not necessarily...house sound is mixed for the room, not for board recordings. In small, noisy bars, individual instruments will be mixed way out of whack compared to each other just to make the room sound decent. Now, if you're talking about acoustically gorgeous rooms, that's another thing, but I have a feeling it's not...

you can't find a good case of beer for $20.00, let alone a single mic.

please - prove me wrong.

I can honestly say I've made some live recordings that sounded better with a ~$10 computer mic attached to my hat > MD than a SBD > MD in the same room (600 people sized bar). I'm not suggesting the recording would sound as good as if I brought my "real" gear in...but I've had many friends who thought the recordings are quite good.

I've got a $10 mic here, although it's not something I'd use for recording a show. It's something I bought so I can talk to my computer.

With _some_ band's boards, though, even a $10 piece of junk like this would be a better choice than a board plugin! (Some of the crappy boards I've heard....) And that's why a lot of bands don't allow board access, no matter how much you beg. (Others don't allow board access for other reasons, but that's beside the point.)

I agree that it's better, for taping, to have decent mics than to have some cheap piece of crap. But if you consider any recording to be better than no recording, then in many cases, even a cheap mic will be better than begging for board access that won't be granted! Not that I'm recommending cheap, crappy mics. Just sayin'.... ;)
